Thursday Short Cuts

Upright: “Many have argued that Trump is the product of political correctness (PC). This is true only in part. Rather, both PC and Trump’s response to it are fruits of the postmodernism that has long ascended to the heights of our culture: the nihilism in the common presumption that all truth is relative, morality is subjective, and therefore all of our individually preferred ‘narratives’ that give our lives meaning are equally true and worthy of validation.” —David Ernst

Forewarning: “President Trump has repeatedly said he won’t touch Social Security or Medicare — the two programs the CBO says will be responsible for most of the spending growth in the next decade if nothing changes. … To be fair, Trump wants to see fundamental tax reforms and deregulation implemented. However, it’s hard to see how these policies, no matter how great they are, could generate enough growth — and hence revenue — to compensate for all that new and old spending. That is why, in four years, Trump may be able to truthfully call himself, not Barack Obama, the biggest debt creator of all time.” —Veronique de Rugy

Non Compos Mentis: “I was raised Catholic, became Episcopalian & found out later my family was Jewish. I stand ready to register as Muslim in #solidarity.” —Madeleine Albright

Village Idiots: “On Saturday, we watched women and men across this country and the globe stand up, speak out, and peacefully march for those values with one voice. It was awe-inspiring. We have to keep up the momentum.” —Hillary Clinton

Braying Jenny: “I’m asking that the vote for Sen. Jeff Sessions be held over until next week. … I believe it’s important to reflect on this nomination in light of the demonstration we saw this weekend.” —Sen. Dianne Feinstein, using the women’s march to block Sessions’ confirmation as attorney general

And last… “Do terms like ‘civil liberties’ and ‘human rights’ mean something specific or are they kind of like meaningless expletives now? I mean, you can say lots of negative (and true) things about the wall, but ‘violates civil liberties’? Why is Trump’s opposition so dumb?” —Frank Fleming
